This webinar series focuses on what we are learning about COVID-19 and adults with IDD to discuss practical implications for their health care now and moving forward. It is jointly sponsored by the International Association for Scientific Studies in Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (IASSIDD) Health, Challenging Behaviour and Mental Health, Ethics and IDD Special Interest Research Groups (SIRGs); the Developmental Disabilities Primary Care Program, Surrey Place Centre, Toronto; and Continuing Professional Development, Faculty of Medicine, University of Toronto. Continuing Medical Education credits for participants will be awarded through the Canada and the College of Family Physicians of Canada and Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons, and similar bodies recognizing these credits internationally.
This series aims to bring together front-line clinicians caring for people with IDD and researchers from a range of disciplines and medical specialties. Participants can contribute to panel discussions by responding to live polls and submitting questions. Resources and practice tips will be shared throughout the series.
Register to join us for the first webinar of this series on Tuesday, June 23, 2020 from 1200-1315 hours EST. Our expert speakers will address health research and practice related to adults with IDD, as well as offer resources and practice tips.
